Hello, from Beaumont Ca
I’ve really enjoyed reading the post on this forum. I’ve been able to learn some thing’s from other people’s experiences which is already making my journey a whole lot easier. Thank you for your help.
A few words about myself, and then 1 question and 1 success story, back in 94 I bought a new Trek 820 MTB fast forward 18 years and it was time to air up the tires again and get back in the saddle . In January of 2010 I needed to lose 100 lbs. so I went and started walking but that was taking a toll on my knees and that’s when the light bulb came on and I looked at the 820 again. Since then I’m down to 230 from 290, 40 lbs. to go. My height is 5’10’’.
My question, I am looking for a 26x1.50 street tire that is tough, gets good mileage and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
My success story is the other day I rode up the Beaumont side to Oak Glen without stopping. Once I passed Wildwood Canyon Road I said, “Yeah, I can do this!” When I reached Los Rios Ranch, the highest point of elevation, I was pumped up.
Okay, back to reality now. In closing I want to tip my hat to all the C/A that ride for whatever reason, for fun or health may you continue on your journey safely.
